Analysis of Anisotropic Transverse Flow in Pb–Pb Collisions at 40A GeV in the NA49 Experiment


Anisotropic transverse flow is one of the most important observables in the study of ultra-relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions. Detector acceptance non-uniformity in the transverse plane introduces substantial bias in the flow analysis dictating the need for specific corrections. The results of flow analysis in Pb-Pb collisions at the beam energy of 40
